I went to see this movie as a kid. I think I was like 6 or maybe 7? I don't even remember watching it, but I do remember lining up outside of the movie theater and seeing the Jurassic Park posters everywhere.

Take me back to June 11, 1993

Ready for a walk down memory lane?

The date is June 11, 1993, and it's a Friday. Anyone born today will have the star sign Gemini. Many people have "that Friday feeling" and are looking forward to the weekend.

The summer of 1993 is in full swing. The weather is warm, and the evenings are brighter than usual. Most schools and colleges are now finished until August or September. In America, the song "That's The Way Love Goes" by Janet Jackson is at the top of the singles charts, while "All That She Wants" by Ace of Base is the number-one song in the UK. Bill Clinton is the President of the United States, and the movie Cliffhanger is at the top of the box office.

John Major is the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. On television, people are watching popular shows such as "Sherlock Holmes", "Roseanne", "Step by Step", and "Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman". Texting is not a thing yet. Instead, people are using landline phones and pagers. Furthermore, most people have never heard of the Internet.

A civil war is taking place in the African country of Rwanda. In fashion, many of the trends from the late 1980s are still in vogue. Colored tights, denim overalls, leotards, flannel shirts, and shoulder pads are all fashionable at the moment. Grunge fashion has also become mainstream, popularizing band t-shirts, ripped jeans, mom jeans, and Doc Martens. A war is continuing to rage in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Meanwhile, in technology news, a relatively new storage format called the CD is beginning to outpace the regular cassette tape in music sales. The disc-based format gives listeners the ability to skip between songs instead of having to manually rewind and forward. A playing discs game called "Pogs" is currently spreading in popularity throughout the world. It's 1993, so radio stations are being dominated by the likes of Meat Loaf, UB40, Snow, Haddaway, Whitney Houston, Take That, Janet Jackson and Mariah Carey.

In celebrity news, singer Mariah Carey has married Sony Music CEO Tommy Mottola. Basketball fans are shocked by the news that New Jersey Nets shooting guard Dražen Petrović has died in a car accident in Germany. Petrović was only 28 years old. In celebrity news, Prince has recently announced that he is changing his name to a symbol. As a result, the media is now referring to him as "the Artist Formerly Known as Prince".

The song "I Get Around" has just been released by rapper Tupac Shakur. Steven Spielberg's new adventure film "Jurassic Park" has been released in movie theaters. The movie is proving to be a huge box-office success. If you were to travel back to this day, notable figures such as Pat Nixon, Reggie Lewis, Vincent Price, and River Phoenix would all still be alive.

People are playing video games such as "Mortal Kombat", "Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins", "Sonic the Hedgehog 2", and "Final Fantasy V". Children and teenagers are watching television shows such as "Round the Twist", "The Ren & Stimpy Show", "Rugrats", and "The Addams Family". Children are playing with toys such as Sylvanian Families, Lego Pirates, the SEGA Game Gear, and the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES).
